White House press secretary Sarah Sanders held her first White House press briefing in nearly a month, and she certainly didn’t hold back from her usual scorching responses.
Sanders chose to end the briefing after answering a question as to why President Donald Trump seemed to be against women and for men when it came to allegations of sexual assault.
Watch the video below to see her epic response:
Here is how the exchange went down:
Reporter: “President Trump has seemed to link the credibility of a claim with how much time has passed since the individual made it. President Trump has also called the sex abuse scandal in the Catholic church “very sad,” but many of those victims waited decades before coming forward.”
“Why does the president seem to assume men who are claiming abuse but wait to come forward are telling the truth, but not women?”
Sarah Sanders: “That’s just completely untrue. The president has supported again, throughout this entire process, Dr. Ford’s ability to come forward and tell her story. He’s the one that ordered the FBI to do a further supplemental background check to look into each individual accusations and allegations that the Senate deems necessary before making a vote.”
“He’s also been more than happy to give a platform to the accusers who came out against then-President Bill Clinton. To say that he has never sided with women is just ridiculous.”
Reporter: “He has implied that they are coming out of the woodwork all of a sudden and cited that as a reason why, even though he has called for an investigation–”
Sanders: “He’s saying that because after Judge Kavanaugh has been in public service and in the public eye for over 26 years, been through six background investigations, and now part of a seventh, that this is the first time you are ever hearing of any of these allegations.”
“The fact that through all of those background checks, not even an inkling of any of those things has ever come up, despite the fact he was one of the top prosecutors for Ken Starr and in a major public position, none of these things came up.”
“When he was nominated to be on the federal bench, none of these things came up. He’s been a public figure and there’s been a lot of opportunity for people to raise this issue, and it never has. And now, at the eleventh hour, the Democrats have exploited this process and done so publicly. That’s a shame and he’s simply calling that out.”
“Thanks so much, guys, we’ll see you soon.” [Sanders leaves the podium]
